Get ready to return to Windsor Gardens and enjoy the charming company of the Browns once again, as the release date for Paddington 3 is just around the corner. Everyone’s favorite bear from the big screen is all set to make his comeback, giving even Winnie the Pooh a run for his honey.
In 2014, director Paul King gave us one of the best kids’ movies of the 21st century with Paddington. Then, three years later, he joined forces with co-writer Simon Farnaby for Paddington 2, which many consider one of the all-time great movies. We’re not apologizing for saying that because it’s true. It’s been a while since then, but get ready to check under your hat and cross your fingers for a marmalade sandwich, as we’re about to dive into one of the new movies we’re eagerly looking forward to.
Paddington 3 release date
Paddington 3, also known as Paddington in Peru, is set to hit theaters on Friday, January 17, 2025. But for viewers in the UK, the excitement is even closer, as it’s arriving on Friday, November 8, 2024.
Paddington 3 was a bittersweet goodbye for director Paul King, who left behind his bear buddy to work on the film Wonka. Since then, fans have been eagerly waiting, but the production faced delays on several occasions, including the 2023 Actors Strike.
Now, we have a precise date to look forward to when Paddington will return to grace our lives with his boundless charm. It’s a little over a year from now, but the countdown has already begun.
Who’s in the Paddington 3 cast?
Ben Whishaw and Hugh Bonneville will reprise their roles as the leading stars in the cast of Paddington 3. Joining them are notable newcomers, including Olivia Colman, Emily Mortimer, Antonio Banderas, and Carla Tous.
It’s quite surprising to think that Colin Firth was originally set to voice Paddington, as Ben Whishaw’s gentle and child-like voice is such an ideal fit for the CGI bear. Since much of the movie takes place in Peru, it’s expected that Imelda Staunton will return, having had a stint in The Crown cast, to lend her voice to Aunt Lucy once more.
The Brown family is making a return, but there has been a change in the lineup. Sally Hawkins has decided to step away from the role of Mrs. Brown, and Emily Mortimer is set to take her place. While it’s sad to bid farewell to Hawkins, we have high hopes that Mortimer will be a wonderful addition to the cast.

- Ben Whishaw as Paddington
